How to Respond to Today’s Ministry Challenges: Free Preview of “Effective Christian Ministry” Training Program

We all know that the Church faces critical ministry challenges. Research shows that 60% of young people fall away from the Faith as they grow into young adults. 

And did you know that a new study has found that ⅓ of people have stopped attending church altogether during the coronavirus pandemic. They’ve completely disconnected, and aren’t even streaming services.

Why? And what can we do to connect people (especially youth and young adults) to the Church?

We designed a new program to answer these questions and help you raise a new generation of faithful Orthodox Christians.

“Effective Christian Ministry” is our new, cutting-edge ministry training program designed to help both clergy and laity lead young people to Christ.This program is transforming the way Orthodox Christians are responding to today’s ministry challenges. Over 400 people have already benefited from “Effective Christian Ministry.” As one senior priest told us: “I could not be more grateful for ‘Effective Christian Ministry.’ As someone who worked directly in youth ministries for decades, I can say that this has been a long time coming. And I don't think it could fill the need we've had any better." As a mom and ministry volunteer told us: “This is unlike anything I have ever read about or seen before. This training has exceeded my expectations and then some. I finally understand how I can change things--for myself, and then to help my own children and the families in our parish.”

So what can you expect from the program?

“Effective Christian Ministry” includes Three Modules designed to help you lead transformational ministry in your home, community, or ministry program.

  1. The Mountains of Ministry

We start by diagnosing the problem in Module I. We can’t help young people stay connected with the Church if we don’t first understand why they’re falling away and disengaging from the Faith.

  1. Making a Ministry Map

Next, in Module II, we create a ministry map that will help us develop our strategy. We set forth the current state of ministry, where we need to go from here, and the five challenges standing in the way of effective Christian ministry.

  1. The Practices of Effective Ministry

Finally, in Module III, we respond to the five ministry challenges with the five practices of effective Christian ministry. These are the core practices that make up transformative ministry for today’s young people.
